    Thumbs up Who's Who in Heaven

    The 4 Soldiers

    One day, four young warriors turn up outside the pearly gates. St. Peter explained that before they could pass they must answer one simplenquestion.

    Up walked the first guy. St Peter asked, "What's 2+2?" The 1st
    warrior answers: "3" "NO" said St Peter, "5" "NO" said St Peter "4"
    "Yes; in you go."

    Up comes the second warrior. St Peter asked him,
    "What's 2+2?" He answered, "The square root of 16."
    Very impressed St Peter allows him past.

    Up comes the third warrior.
    St Peter asked him, "What's 2+2?" "It's greater than 2." "Yes" "But less than 6" "Yes" "It's greater than 3" "Yes" "But less than 5" "Yes" "It's 4" "Well done, in you go"


    Up comes the fourth warrior. St Peter asked him, "What's 2+2?"
    Arrooooaa ! ! ! and with "now by your leave" he barges past St Peter and in through the pearly gates.


    Observing all this, an angel asked St Peter, "What was all that about?"

    St Peter answered, "It's perfectly obvious: there must be another war on earth, and those four men were all officers who have been killed." "How can you tell?" inquires the angel.


    "The first guy was an army tanker , dumb as seaweed and crude as mud, but he kept hammering away until he got through.

    The second guy was a combat engineer, who gave me more information than I really required.

    The third guy was an artillery man, who was uncomfortable with any firm answer, but was bracketing to zero in on the correct answer."

    "But what about the fourth guy?" inquired the angel. "He got it wrong, and then tore through the gates anyway."

    Ahh Yes" said St Peter, "But that was a U. S. Marine infantryman - dumber than dirt, but you've just gotta love 'em."

    Not bad EX, reminds me of some folks I knew when stationed on an aircraft carrier. We had approximately 100 Mah-rines on board. Pretty good bunch all in all...

    This reminds me of the time I tried to explain the concept of a parabola to an ex-Marine who'd been in the Corps for 10 years and had just come to work with us. I drew it, I showed him a picture of a headlight, I tossed a football to him in a parabolic curve... nothin'.

    Then I put it like this. "Okay we have a mortar platoon over here and the pinko commies are hiding in a foxhole over here, what path does the mortar have to take?"

    He suddenly got it. And he didn't understand why everyone else in the office was laughing.

    And when I get to Heaven,
    I'll walk up to the gates.
    I'll talk with Ol' St. Peter,
    About my destined fate.

    The story is the same to him.
    The story is known quite well.
    Another Marine reporting, Sir,
    I served my time in hell.
